Probably one of the most elite youth snowboarding programs in the world, Project Gold provides America’s best snowboarders with the opportunity to come together and train with the world’s best coaches. Project Gold is lead by U.S. Snowboarding’s Spencer Tablyn and is aimed to nurture and train the future talents of the winter sports. Project Gold targets America’s top youth athletes from age 13-18 with the events of boardercross, alpine snowboarding, and halfpipe.
This year’s Project Gold will be held in Mammoth, CA and Flow’s own Drayden Gardner has received the very prestigious invite. We caught up with Drayden before he heads to Project Gold to get an insight of how this top young snowboarder is feeling about the program.
Drayden is beyond excited for this program. “I’m stoked”, said Drayden, “I will have access to air bags and the US Olympic Coaches!”. Drayden is expecting to seriously push himself and progress as much as possible. He will have every opportunity to advance his snowboarding and plans to utilize every asset that Project Gold offers. The camp is set to focus on developing the athletes’ talents to translate into better contest results. Drayden plans to learn new tricks, develop better contest strategies, but most of all, have fun. “I don’t know what to expect. All I know, is that I’m excited to meet the coaches and ride with U.S.A.’s top amateurs”.
Although Drayden is still young and has plenty to learn, his natural skill on a snowboard provides him with limitless potential. Project Gold is a huge stepping stone for Drayden and his path to becoming one of snowboard’s elite athletes.
